31. Mr. Mander

asked the Home Secretary whether he is now able to state his decision with reference to bringing into operation the Adoption of Children Act, 1939?

My hon. Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State has received this week deputations on this matter from the principal child welfare organisations and also from the Woman-power Committee. I propose to consider their representations before arriving at a decision.
